You came to a world filled with darkness and sin,

You loved us devoutly without and within,

Your love conquered all through a child meek and small,

Dear, God, Your Son came, and He died for us all.

You took away sadness and filled us with peace,

You give us a hope that defies life’s surcease.

You gave Your life for us so we could be free.

Sweet Jesus, Your blood you did shed on the tree.

Your body lay lifeless, but rose on that day,

To conquer the devil – our ransom to pay,

So now we look forward to that special time,

When we will live with You in heaven sublime,

Come quickly Lord, Jesus, and carry us home,

Remove all the darkness, bring light where we roam,

Be with us forever and love us each day,

Sweet Jesus, we love you, what more can we say?

The most exciting adventure known to mankind, began at the very beginning of creation. God made man in His own image. He loved His human creation so much that, even though they betrayed and disobeyed Him, He came to dwell among them and take away their sin. Isaiah foretold this great, unimaginable love seven hundred years before it happened. We can look back at these early prophecies and see how they were fulfilled in the birth of Jesus, but are we prepared for His return? Every day, God’s promises are kept. Every day we can see His hand at work in our lives. We can see the threads being woven together to bring us closer to Him, but can we truly imagine God living among us? The day is coming when that prophecy will also be fulfilled. It is the highway paved with gold that leads to our reunion with our heavenly Father. Prepare for the next adventure. It’s right around the corner.

 “Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14


About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    After my hip injury, my family wanted me to retire from working in the classroom which I did. But our Sunday school director quit two months ago. Jenny, who is taking over for awhile asked me if I would help with 5-9 year old’s. I worked with Jenny as a sub last year and she is wonderful. Everybody at the church is so excited! How God always plays the part!

      Children in that age group have the childlike faith that Jesus wants from all of us. I loved teaching Sunday school too, because I learned something new each week. God with us!

  2. Kathy, your poem takes us behind the scenes of that very first Christmas. In the shadows, we see a cross. We are blessed to be able to understand the rest of God’s story.
